CONTROVERSY WAS KING IN 2004

Most Beautiful movie of the year:
"House of Flying Daggers."
If you'd rather go to the dentist than a foreign movie,
take a chance on life and see this one.
You will not be disaapointed.

Ugliest movie of the year:
"Saw."
Mutilation,amputation and other forms of torture,
all brought to you in an overly astray, headache
inducing style.

Funniest sex movie of the year:
"Alexander"
Colin Farrell and Rosario Dawson get naked and
hiss and paw at each other.

Sexiest sex scene of the year:
Sabrina Seyvecou and Coralie Revel in "Secret Things."
(It's a French film, Rent it)

generated foes in "Van Helsing"

Number of sequels in the top four box office films of the year:
Three: "Shrek 2", "Spider Man 2", "Harry Potter
and the Prisoner of Azbakan".
The only non sequel is "The Passion of Christ," which
probably isn't going to have a sequel, but certainly could.

Most romantic moments of the year:
Zach Braff kisses Natalie Portman in the driving rain in "garden State"

Least romantic and most intense scene of the year:
Prodded by Clive Owen, Julia Roberts describes
the infideltiy in beyond graphic details.

It's a Cinderella story:
The calendar said it was 2004, but there was a
distinct 1955 feel to these films about young women
falling in love with actual princes:
"The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement"
"A Cinderella Story"
"The Prince and Me"
"Ella Enchanted"

Words to live by:
"If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball"
Rip Torn as Patches O'Houliahn in "Dodgeball"

Right Movie, wrong Corleone:
Premiere magazine's list of the 100 greatest
movie characters of all time was headed
by Marlon Brando's Don Coleone.
